What is backcountry touring, skiing and riding?
April 13, 2023 | Posted in:
Backcountry touring is a human powered activity that can include the use of skis or a splitboard. You will use climbing skins and bindings with a free-heel feature to skin uphill and then ski back down.
Backcountry skiing takes place outside of ski resorts, where you can get away from the crowds and enjoy untracked snow.
During a backcountry tour you will be moving uphill for approximately 60% of your day and moving down hill about 40% of the day.
